Sony introduced WF-1000XM3 wireless headphones. Among the key features of the model, in addition to high sound quality, are the long battery life, active noise reduction function, NFC module and a number of other options for various usage scenarios.
The product is based on the QN1e processor with support for Active Noise Reduction Dual Noise Sensor. The principle of its operation is the capture of external noise with the help of two microphones and the creation of an inverted wave that neutralizes extraneous sounds. Under the “hood” of the model, 6 mm drivers with neodymium magnets were placed with the support of an integrated DAC with an amplifier capable of processing the 24-bit audio signal. Despite its compact dimensions, the frequency range of the headphones is not cut off: their “coverage” is from 20 Hz to 20 kHz.
To improve the sound quality of MP3 files, Digital Sound Enhancement Engine HX (DSEE HX) technology is provided, which “tightens” the compressed format to high-resolution audio standards. The headphones support SBC and AAC codecs, the list of Bluetooth profiles includes A2DP, AVRCP, HFP, and HSP. The technology of simultaneous transmission of sound to both headphones improves the quality of the connection and reduces the delay time of the signal.
Thanks to the use of the Bluetooth 5.0 module, the model is characterized by low power consumption and is able to work up to 8 hours on a single charge. When you turn on the noise reduction function, the battery life will be up to 6 hours, and taking into account the battery capacity of the charging case - up to 24 hours.
Additional features of the Sony WF-1000XM3 include an NFC chip for quick pairing with a smartphone, Quick Attention mode to reduce the volume during a conversation, support for Google Voice Assistant and Wearing Detection, which pauses the track when you remove one of the headphones and resumes when it is placed back to the ear. You can configure sound, noise reduction, and gestures for touch control through the Sony Headphones Connect mobile application.
